Test drives are out of the question, and we're not sure where the F&I department is situated, but soon you'll be able to buy a car on a plane in China.
Spring Airlines, the nation's largest privately owned carrier, plans to start selling Chinese-brand automobiles to passengers, with flight attendants trained to handle the transaction.
Spring Air is still working out which brands and models to offer.
"Our passengers can have time during their flight to study details of the models available," an airline spokesman told the South China Morning Post.
"We have been in talks with a wide range of mainland carmakers for a long period of time," he said.
Next month Spring Air will have point-of-sale technology on flights so passengers can put a set of wheels on a credit card.
The thorniest problem is how to train Spring Air's 500-plus cabin crew on the specs of the cars they'll be hawking.
The first batch of models would start at the equivalent of about $16,000.
Spring Air Chairman Wang Zheng-hua has said he thinks frequent travelers, who don't have time to visit dealerships, would like to thumb through new-car brochures and even buy a vehicle during a flight.
Incentives may be offered to car buyers on board. The airline may also offer a grace period for cancelling the order if buyers have second thoughts after landing.
